What are 29 cent Elvis Presley stamps worth?

US Scott Numbers 2721, 2724, and 2731.

This is a US commemorative stamp but there are three versions of the Elvis stamp and one is slightly less common than the other 2. The stamps themselves in used condition are available for about 20 cents. An unused or mint it would be 60 to 70 cents. If you want to order it by mail, you would also have to pay postage and handling.

Dealers get them as part of larger lots for almost nothing per stamp- say 65% face if mint and 1/2 to 1 cent if used. The money they would charge you for it is mostly for labor.

How much is an authentic picture of Elvis Presley worth?

Costs about $50-$250 but the value differs from 5 dollars all the way to 1,000. You just have to know where to look. It can also be up to 1 million dollars! It depends on the picture and where you buy.
If its original and signed or something, quite a lot but if its just a picture its worthless because you can print one off the internet

Was Elvis Presley Jewish?

Elvis Presley lived as a Christian, but his family tree contained Jewish blood. His maternal grandmother was Jewish; and he even wore a "chai" necklace, and a Star of David.

Was Elvis Presley jealous of the Beatles?

Yes. The telegram read onstage during the Beatles' first Ed Sullivan Show appearance was actually sent by Presley's manager, and he knew nothing about it at the time.

During Richard Nixon's presidency, Presley encouraged Nixon to ban the (now broken up) Beatles from the United States, claiming their use of drugs set a bad example for young people. (Never mind that Elvis himself was abusing prescription drugs through the same years.)

Narcissism

Emotions

How do you confront a narcissistic rage?

First of all, remember the rage is not about you, it is about the narcissist. Everything is always about the narcissist. Once you operate from that standpoint it is easier to deal with the issue at hand. Do not try to reason or explain anything in hopes to calm the narcissist, this will likely only draw you further criticism and confrontation. Essentially, without obviously backing down and providing another opportunity for enragement, defuse by accepting the narcissists view for the moment. I am not saying you should actually agree, but for the sake of the moment, agree with the key points without appearing condescending. As soon as possible, remove yourself from the situation and remind yourself that a narcissist lives in an imaginary world of their own making, and within that world there is often no room for logic or another's viewpoint. It's not personal, even though it can feel exquisitely personal, it's about THEM. THEY cannot tolerate feeling whatever they are confronting - lack of control, embarrassment, boredom, etc. If you are a close intimate of a narcissist you provide the role of easy target for many varied disappointments. Have you noticed how you are suddenly quite powerful, somehow causing events not even remotely connected to you? Sure sign you are the whipping-person of a narcissist. Do not think you can change this person. You cannot. Get away while you are still sane.
